KPITB collaborates with Amazon to transform government operations.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB) today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to advance the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Government’s digital transformation.

The MoU will allow the KP Government to learn about and experiment with cloud technology in order to improve efficiency, reliability, and security at a lower cost.

As part of the MOU, KPITB will collaborate with KP Government agencies and AWS to identify pilot workloads that could benefit from AWS’s services, as well as educate the agencies on the benefits and capabilities of cloud computing.

They will be able to leverage AWS’s world-class infrastructure and security capabilities to leverage the most comprehensive portfolio of services available, including analytics, computing, database, the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, mobile and storage services, and other cloud technologies.

This will encourage the KP Government to experiment with new ideas while also allowing agencies to deliver new citizen services more quickly and at a lower cost.
